Our overview

The EVI Pilot City Forum 2021 was hosted by Dundee City Council in the Apex City Hotel in November 2021. This event was one of many conferences Global Events 247 managed over the two weeks of Cop26. Over several weeks our events team worked with Sophie and her colleagues to plan the delivery of the event. Sophie planned a hybrid event as several of the keynote speakers were overseas and could not attend in person due to travel restrictions.

 

So we looked at what equipment we required for the main meeting room, PA system, Lighting, Stage, Projector, Screen and Cameras, Live streaming Kit and fast Internet. We then looked at what was required for those who couldn’t attend in person, including several keynote speakers. We would need a landing page for the event, so our in house graphics team designed a landing page that had all the keynote speakers details, the agenda for the event and a video player and chat box where delegates could ask questions live on the day.

 

With excellent planning by Sophie and her Team and our experience in delivering events, we produced a first-class event.


Challenges & solutions

Challenge:

Our main challenge was delivering everything the client wanted within a set budget.

Solution:
Our solution was to work with our client and make suggestions on delivering everything they wanted without compromising too much, and without going over budget!

 

Challenge:

To Supply an easy to use platform for delegates to watch the conference.

Solution:

We designed and build a branded landing page with information on the speakers’, a schedule for the day, a video player and a Live chat function so that virtual delegates could watch and ask questions. The Landing page would also be used post-event so that delegates that couldn’t attend could watch replays of the speakers’ talks.

 

Challenge:
Bring virtual speakers into the main room via a video link!

Solution:
We always suggest a rehearsal with the remote speakers. Having them log on for a trial run ensures everyone that we will not have issues on the day.
